I.A Detailed Look at Christmas in Social Games on Facebook
With Christmas just a few days away, the hype of the holiday is at its peak. Social game developers are making the most of it with a tremendous influx of specially themed goods, décor, and game mechanics. From snowmen to Santa, the Christmas theme is showing itself to be far greater than Halloween and completely dwarfing the holidays from 2009.
From big to small, we take a look below at what Facebook games have done for the holiday. We've split our review into two broad categories: virtual goods and new features.
Christmas Virtual Goods
Themed virtual goods are easily the most common Christmas addition across all social games. Here's a compilation of social developers and which games are hosting what:
A Bit Lucky – Lucky Train has about six Christmas-themed houses such as Santa's House, a Gingerbread House, Toy Factories, and so on. Additionally, players can change the entire theme of their train town to resemble a winter wonderland blanketed in snow.
Players can also gift special, limited time, holiday items such as candy canes, snowmen, and Christmas trees. This plays well into A Bit Lucky's more interesting holiday contests, which we cover below.
Booyah – Nightclub City, with all of its glitz and glamor, has put in a variety of stylized Christmas club items. These include decorative club items such as snowflake dance floors and "North Pole Dancers", as well as holiday clothing for avatars and entourages. Complete with Santa hats and tops, the game also takes a goofier approach with Rudolph, Frosty, and Christmas tree avatar outfits.
